Florence and the Machine

Performing as part of New Music Shorts


Florence and the Machine perform for BBC Electric Proms 2009 in partnership with BBC New Music Shorts and 6 Music. Earlier this year, filmmakers were asked to submit ideas for an inventive and original short film inspired by the music of Florence and the Machine and Metronomy. BBC New Music shorts has commissioned Keith McCarthy to make a short film inspired by Florence and the Machine's 'Dog Days Are Over'.

With her darkly romantic songs and hugely charismatic stage presence, Florence Welch harks back to British eccentrics like Kate Bush, Siouxsie Sioux and Annie Lennox. 2009's Mercury Prize-nominated debut album Lungs is a through the looking glass-fantasy - one where tribal drums and Florence's distinctive, powerful voice soundtrack gothic fables of love, lust and coffin-making.

For BBC Electric Proms, Florence and the Machine and Metronomy perform in the Roundhouse's Studio Theatre, after the big screen premier of the films inspired by their music.
